I try so send a push notification if the washmaschine finished to wash. I use a Homematic IP Switch and Meter Plug. I have the possibility to switch the plug manually on and off. But I don’t receive a message on the Openhab app, if the maschine was ready. I tried the following rule:
Item GF_LaundryRoom_Power_washmaschine_consume < 45.00
sendBroadcastNotification("Washmaschine ready ")
But I don’t will receive anything. I tried already with another value. But it’s the same result.
yes, that’s normal behaviour if you edit the file via smb or sftp. The first line is triggered as the file is touched (but empty), the second line is triggered as the file is written. If there’s no further notice (INFO or WARN or ERROR) after the last “loading model…” you’re safe!
Please read through both and try to adapt to your rules.
If you have an item, you can address it in a rule of Course. If you don’t add “.state” to that, you’ll get all the meta-data of that item (itemtype, last update, … AND the value). So, if you want to compare something to an item value you MUST add .value to it - But that’s explained in detail above.
